Safety in num­bers?

Pilot - - TECH LOG -

My home base of Tur­we­ston seems to op­er­ate ex­tremely well with a staff of two do­ing ev­ery­thing from ATC, to mov­ing air­craft, to re­fu­elling. Cran­field ap­pears un­able to op­er­ate at all with­out an army of Air Traf­fic Con­trollers, and has re­cently been closed more of­ten than it is open. I can­not see that they are in the slight­est bit safer when they are op­er­at­ing than Tur­we­ston.

If they do not want to be a proper air­field, and heaven knows they give visi­tors lit­tle enough rea­son to want to go there, should they be en­ti­tled to a vol­ume of airspace we call an Air Traf­fic Zone? Stephen Coles, Waven­don
